===DESCRIPTION===
+
'''load_traj''' loads a trajectory as "states" into an already loaded molecular object.
 
  "load_traj" reads trajectory files (currently just AMBER files).
 
  The file extension is used to determine the format.
 
 
  AMBER files must end in ".trj"
 
 
===USAGE===
 
 
  load_traj filename [,object [,state [,format [,interval [,average ]
 
                      [,start [,stop [,max [,selection [,image [,shift
 
                      ]]]]]]]]]
 
 
===PYMOL API===
 
<source lang="python">
 
  cmd.load_traj(filename,object='',state=0,format='',interval=1,
 
              average=1,start=1,stop=-1,max=-1,selection='all',image=1,
 
              shift="[0.0,0.0,0.0]")
 
</source>
 
  
===NOTES===
+
Since version 1.0, PyMOL uses the [http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/vmd/plugins/molfile/ Molfile Plugin] backend, which supports a variety of trajectory file formats. Older versions only supported the ascii AMBER format (".trj" file extension).
 
  You must first load a corresponding topology file before attempting
 
  to load a trajectory file.

load_traj loads a trajectory as "states" into an already loaded molecular object.

Since version 1.0, PyMOL uses the Molfile Plugin backend, which supports a variety of trajectory file formats. Older versions only supported the ascii AMBER format (".trj" file extension).

Loading a large trajectory may take up a lot of RAM, unless the defer_builds_mode is set to 3.

Usage

load_traj filename [,object [,state [,format [,interval [,average ]
                   [,start [,stop [,max [,selection [,image [,shift 
                   [, plugin ]
                   ]]]]]]]]]

Arguments

  • filename = str: trajectory file path
  • object = str: name of the molecular object where the trajectory should be appended as states {default: guess from filename}
  • state = int: object state where to start appending states. To discard the currently loaded coordinates, use state=1. To append new states, use state=0 {default: 0}
  • format = str: specify file type instead of guessing from file extension (only affects AMBER .trj format, use "plugin" argument for Molfile Plugin types) {default: }

Examples

# topology from PDB file, trajectory from DCD file
load      sampletrajectory.pdb
load_traj sampletrajectory.dcd

# gromacs trajectory, using "mytraj" as object name
load      sampletrajectory.gro, mytraj
load_traj sampletrajectory.xtc, mytraj

# desmond trajectory
load      sample-out.cms, mytraj
load_traj sample_trj/clickme.dtr, mytraj

# playing through states, memory optimized (but eventually slower)
set defer_builds_mode, 3
mplay

Notes

  • PyMOL does not know how to wrap the truncated octahedron used by Amber You will need to use the cpptraj program first to do this.
  • The average option is not a running average. To perform this type of average, use the smooth command after loading the trajectory file.
  • For quickly viewing Trajectories as a movie, use the mset command to map each state to a movie frame.
